Bowl projections after the first weekend in November:
Stewart Mandel at CNNSI.
Ivan Maisel and Pat Forde at ESPN
After reading those projections, I have to say that I'm shocked to see so many of these pundits continue to list Alabama as the SEC Champ. Have they actually seen Bama's offense since Prothro went down? As I keep screaming at anyone who will listen..."They have scored exactly one offensive touchdown in 3 of their past 4 games."
I could see listing LSU for the top spot, but Bama? Are the experts taking the easy route of just looking at the rankings or do they think Bama's defense is just that much better than anyone in the SEC's offense?
